Now, this, is a truly odd blog. Well, maybe not the blog itself, but the day. While Harvey and his fearless interns just touched down in Harrisburg for tonight’s audience participation screening, I’m back in the office…all alone. No dogs. No interns. Just two broken printers (yes, the third one finally worked!), and the smell of coffee brewing. Yum.
I pulled into the production office just as Harvey, Stephanie, James, and Sepanta were ‘loading out,’ and I did feel some motherly pride, watching them head out on the road with Harvey. A few weeks ago, they were just babies, barely able to finish one cup of coffee while Harvey and I were on our fourth and fifth cups, respectively. Yes, I can definitely feel it, the end of the summer, when the majority of our interns head back to school or to the big, wide, world addicted to coffee, and hopefully, a little wiser. But we won’t be totally alone…
Rio will be coming back (we’ve been following her travels back North through Facebook), and also, Brittany, a new intern from my alma mater will be joining the Cap Time crew for the time being. No new animals have joined the menagerie from last count, so it’ll be pretty quiet here for awhile at Cap Time, but there’s still lots going on.
Our editor is using your feedback from the audience participation screenings to make an even better film, and hopefully, we’ll have the latest cut in time to show in Laramie, WY on August 25th. Harvey and I will be joining in on that screening through Skype, which is a first, and hopefully not a last! With Skype-ability, we can be in all sorts of places without having to leave the office, and our dogs, behind. We can reach more and more people this way, and start conversations all over the world that will lead to dyslexia awareness, and changes in policy and education! But first…another cup of coffee.
